n.— «Over-exercising…may also be due to other psychological disorders (e.g. obsessive-compulsive disorder), or to megarexia (also referred to as “bigarexia” or “muscle dysmorphia”). Megarexia is characterised by a constant preoccupation with body size and a rigid exercise routine, resulting in compulsive exercising and weight training even when injuries are present.» —“Dangers of Over-exercising” by Lynette Ng July19, 2001.
